- "The half length figure of a ruffianly man, shouting "Down with the Bank" and raising in both hands a stick or bar. In his hat is a ribbon favour inscribed "No Popery". On the right and behind is the façade of Newgate in flames."--British Museum online catalogue.
Four lines of verse below title: Tho' he says he's a Protestant, look at the print, the face and the bludgeon will give you a hint, religion he cries, in hopes to deceive, while his practice is only to burn and to thieve.
Printmaker from British Museum catalogue.
The ficticious publisher "I. Catch" probably refers to Jack Ketch or the hangman. See British Museum catalogue.
